My wish was fulfilled, I really wanted to eat sarmale with mashed potatoes, I will make it with mashed potatoes and meat

Piroste (sarmale) with mashed potatoes

I chopped all the meat and smoked meat in the mincer using the large hole disc.
I chopped the onion finely.
I washed the pasta well, using a sieve.

I melted the lard in a pot. I put the onion to harden and let it simmer for 10 minutes. I added the pastry and left it for a few more minutes, stirring. I took the pot off the heat and added the meat and parsley. I seasoned with salt, pepper, thyme (as much as you like), a teaspoon of sweet paprika, 1/2 teaspoon of hot paprika and the 7 tablespoons of broth.

While the filling cooled, I prepared the cabbage leaves. I cut them at the end from the back, where it is thicker. Finely chop everything you cut from the sheets. if necessary, chop a few more leaves.

I formed the sarmales (large because that's what radu asked for, but in our area they are made small). I put the packing steps for beginners like me, it was so easy for me, my mother makes them in my hand.

I put 2 tablespoons of oil on the bottom of the pot in which I made the stuffing. then I alternately put layers of chopped cabbage and sarmale in the pot. the last layer will be cabbage. over each layer of cabbage I put a sprig of dried thyme.

I seasoned with a tablespoon of paprika. I added 1 1/2 cup broth and water until the stuffing is completely covered.

I covered the pot with aluminum foil to be well sealed and I put the lid on.

Recipe for fasting sarmale in stevia leaves - ingredients and preparation


  • 4-5 bundles of stevia leaves (you have a few leaves left, which you will put under the sarmale and above them)
  • A cup of rice
  • A carrot
  • 3 onions
  • 4-5 finely chopped mushrooms
  • 2-3 chopped prunes
  • 4-5 pieces chopped walnut kernels
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 300 milliliters of mashed tomatoes or broth
  • 500 milliliters of borscht with larch
  • A few sprigs of dill and parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method of preparation:

Peel and finely chop 2 onions. Heat the oil in a pan and pour the onion. Add a pinch of salt and let the onion harden for 1-2 minutes, over medium heat.

Meanwhile, peel the carrot and grate it, wash the rice and drain, chop the mushrooms, plums and walnut kernels. All this is put in the pan, over the hardened onion. Mix and quench everything with a cup of water.

Leave on medium heat until the rice is swollen, but it is not completely cooked. At the end, add the pepper and salt, add the chopped parsley and dill, mix and set the pan aside.

Meanwhile, put another pan on the fire in which you fry the third chopped onion. Pour the broth, stir and leave for another 2-3 minutes on the fire. This will be the sauce you will use between the layers of sarmale.

Wash the stevia leaves well, cut their stalks, then scald them for 30 seconds in hot water so that they roll easily. Take them out through a sieve to get rid of excess water.

Fill the stevia leaves with the mixture of rice, onion, carrot, mushroom, prunes, walnut kernels - one tablespoon of composition for each leaf.

Put a little oil in a Roman or yena bowl, high enough to fit all the sarmales. Form a "bed" of a few stevia leaves, then place a first neat layer of sarmale. Pour some of the onion broth mixture over the first layer, then continue to build the "fort" of the stuffed cabbage. To each new layer, add a little of the tomato sauce with onions.

Place the remaining chopped stevia leaves, the rest of the broth and possibly a little dried thyme over the last layer of sarmale. In order to boil the sarmales, pour enough borscht over them to cover them a little, but not to puddle in it.

Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil and place in the preheated oven. Leave the sarmales in the oven for 60 minutes at 170 degrees Celsius. The stevia leaves boil much faster than the cabbage leaf. Good appetite!

Fasting sarmale

on top I covered them with cabbage leaves, I didn't pose anymore, I covered them with a plate and I put a glass of water on top of them so they don't fall apart in the pot, now I'm boiling over low heat, I'll be back with the ending and the mother's impressions

A wonderful day and a lot of fun in the kitchen & # 33

cosmina, the nut feels like it's "there" but it doesn't taste like walnut, I don't know how to explain it to you. rather it borrows the taste of the other ingredients, but the consistency is flour

california, I'm glad you like what I did
I think you can replace sauerkraut with beef leaves, if you find / or beets, stevia. or you can scald a fresh cabbage to soften the leaves, you can roll them

So, let me tell you how I do them ... one of the options.

Fry some chopped onions, add grated carrots, chopped bell peppers, and even 1-2 cloves of finely chopped garlic. Then add the rice, let it fry a little, then add a handful of chopped dill. (this is not fasting) when the composition has cooled, and mix well.
I pack them nicely, put broth over them, water..and throw another 1-2 sprigs of dill, or a bay leaf..etc ..

I forgot to say that I season the composition with salt, pepper, paprika..depends..if I want faster, I also add chili (dried and ground)

# 13 Bogdana

my mother was very excited, but I was just as strong, I had forgotten how nice the walnut feels in these sarmales, immm, I put the picture tomorrow as it came out really bad in the artificial light

Peel a squash, grate it and squeeze the juice into it. Boil the brine (300g of salt in 10 l of water) and after it has cooled to 35-40 degrees C, pour it over the cabbage. Cover and keep warm.
To speed up the sourness of the cabbage, add to 1 l of brine 1/2 l of wine vinegar. Cabbage will be sour in 2-3 days.
(Nicolae & Iulia Olexiuc, & quot1800 practical recipes & quot)

For years I didn't have a Romanian store nearby and in this way I sour cabbage because I always woke up on the last hundred meters because I need sour cabbage.
